    Pros

    1. Opportunities to work in many exciting new technology. There's an incorrect perception that Y! is not innovating sufficiently; but this is an incorrect perception. This perception is motivated by challenges in execution & ability to drive a new innovation to market.
    2. Great diversity. Y! still has many opportunity to work with people from different parts of the world.

    Cons

    1. Too many turf issues among middle management, especially among Dir & VP. These wars result in inability to innovate & execute.
    2. Lack of accountability. There's no penalty for failures, thus it has become a culture where result is not important anymore.
    3. Too perception driven. Talents with capability but poor people skills, are never promoted, resulting in loss of valuable talents and a culture where employees care more about good people relationship than delivering user stunning innovations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Two top priorities:
    a. Change culture to result oriented vs perception oriented
    b. Less turf wars

    Recommends

    Pros

    Quite a peaceful place to work at. You get some work life balance. The work place is well set up with some good facilities.

    Cons

    Growth rate is very bad, don't be surprised if you are in the same place as when you joined even after 3 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be good if the management see to it that the benefits that the employees get is in par with their competitors.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
